In the mining park of Riotinto you can do a different railway journey, penetrate into a mine, visit a real victorian house and know about the history of a totally transformed mining bowl. Everything at hand at the minig park of Riotinto.
These are reputed to br the oldest mines in the world (since around 3,000 B.C.). the current company was founded in 1878 and at one point were the world's leading producer of copper. We visited the mining museum in the town itself and then, a...More
Let’s be clear, the mines of Rio Tinto is unlikely ever to make it into a top 10 of must sees in Andalucia (Alhambra etc). However if you are in the area ish (we were in Huelva) then worth a visit, probably.
The museum itself...More
My simple advice is to focus on the museum and the train ride especially if you didn’t speak and Spanish !!!!! The trip to La Peña is really oddly organised - 30/40 cars have to follow the guide in his car and then only to...More
Travel on a train and go back in time across a landscape that's more similar to mars than earth, a bygone era of British rule and industrial revolution, we stayed nearby at the Victorian House Rio Tinto which is only 10 minutes walk from the...More
Well worth a day-trip visit from Sevilla if you have a geological interest or want to see extreme terrains, both natural and man-made. It will become very apparent why there are references to the area being used for research about Mars. The overall area has...More

We visited the Rio Tinto mine and went on the 90 minute train journey around the mine. Ages ranged between 6 and 65. Everyone had a lovely time! Points to note the train only goes a few times a day. Usually 1.30pm and 5pm seems...More
This museum is all about the mining of the ore around the town and also about the British when they were here from the 1880's to the 1950's. The train trip is well worth it, 90 minutes. A new attraction since our last visit is...More

The Museum's own website only give instructions (in Spanish) for arriving by car, which suggests that there is no alternative.
The Seville Tourist Office may be of help.
